Grumpy Gurevitz Writes: Since the days of my Spectrum I have always had the chance to host, or go to someone else's to enjoy, a gaming session. This continued with my Amiga and in the years of the N64 to Playstation 2 it reached the apex of commitment with regular gaming sessions with four close friends.
We would spend an entire afternoon or evening eating junk food, generating lots of hot wind and playing a mixture of 'retro' and new titles on our consoles. The floor would be a mess of wires as we would have a PS2, Gamecube and Xbox all laid out in front of us. We would enjoy some nerdy banter, especially whenever the Xbox was taken out and switched on. The jokes mainly revolved around having to run the virus checker first and Bios before we could play a game. Other gags included us ribbing the Xbox owner that we were required to notify the national grid before we switched it on so they could arrange extra capacity.
These were good sessions.
